Hi,

I will be entering a standard peasant tournament (5 uncommons max) next week but I have never really played constructed pauper or peasant before so was wondering if anyone had any ideas for decks that might be good?

My initial thought went to Lingering Souls, because its such a strong uncommon, and thought about just jamming it into one of the G/W/B Junk decklists that i've found here.

My brewing brain then kicked into gear and I had dreams of a spider spawning deck or even a pillow fort deck with Sphere of Safety.

Here are some rough deck lists i've cobbled together, any thoughts would be greatly appreciated:

    Junk – G/W/B

    Creatures

    2 x Keening Apparition
    1 x Darkthicket Wolf
    4 x Borderland Ranger
    2 x Centaur Healer
    2 x Ogre Jailbreaker
    4 x Seraph of Dawn

    (15)

    Non-creature

    4 x Lingering Souls
    4 x Murder
    4 x Abundant Growth
    3 x Dead Weight
    3 x Victim of Night
    3 x Sign in blood
    1 x Intangible Virtue

    (22)

    Land

    4 x Evolving Wilds
    4 x Golgari Guildgate
    3 x Selesnya Guildgate
    4 x Swamp
    4 x Plains
    4 x Forest

    (23)

    Sideboard

    4 x Deadly Recluse
    2 x Centaur Healer
    2 x Ethereal Armour
    2 x Mind Rot
    2 x Ray of Revelation
    1 x Dead Weight
    1 x Victim of Night
    1 x Keening Apparition

    (15)



    Pillow Fort

    Creatures

    1 x Invisible Stalker
    (1)

    Non-creatures

    1 x Ethereal Armour
    2 x Thought scour
    4 x Sensory Deprivation
    4 x Dead Weight
    4 x Think Twice
    4 x Pacifism
    4 x Forbidden Alchemy
    4 x Stab wound
    4 x Curse of the bloody tome
    4 x Sphere of safety

    (35)

    Land

    4 x Azorious Guildgate
    4 x Evolving Wilds
    10 x Island
    1 x Plains
    5 x Swamp

    (24)



    Spider Spawning

    Creature

    4 x Gate creeper vine
    4 x Screeching Skaab
    4 x Borderland Ranger
    4 x Armoured skaab

    (16)

    Non creature

    4 x Mulch
    4 x Grisly salvage
    4 x Gnaw to the bone
    4 x Forbidden Alchemy
    1 x Runic repetition
    1 x Memory’s Journey
    3 x Spider Spawning

    (21)

    Land

    4 x Golgari guildgate
    4 x Evolving Wilds
    1 x Swamp
    8 x Forest
    6 x Island


I have no idea what the meta will look like sadly. I suspect that the pillow fort deck is just being cute as keening apparitions, ray of revelations etc. should be there in abundance. I also think Spider spawning might be cute and fun to play but perhaps not the best. Any thoughts or suggestions would be very welcome. Thanks.

For the Spider Spawning deck, Chronic Flooding is an absolute must have - it does ridiculous amounts of work getting cards into the yard. I also think you probably need a few more creatures - maybe Dawntreader Elks or Elvish Visionaries or the Blue apprentice guy who sac's himself to draw a card. Maybe pull the Mulches and a couple Alchemies to make room for more creatures and a few floodings.

Thanks. I was a bit worried about lack of creatures so those guys might be good suggestions. I think I'm gonna go with a junk deck rather than a funky brew. I don't know the meta and havent done much testin so I think it will be safer. I think combining Lingering Souls with Travel Preparations might be enough to win games on their own. Here's hopin!
